If you needed an excuse to visit this iconic OHC site, I’m here to give you one. The Return of the Snakes is a family-friendly event run by our site parter, the Arc of Appalachia Preserve System, on June 27 from 10-4.
The largest collection of Ohio’s native reptiles and amphibians ever gathered in our state will be displayed at Serpent Mound, while teaching about their natural history, ecology, and conservation challenges.
